I need some help, something interesting happened to me today, I have a year and half old X-Fi extreme music card, from the beginning was working kind of ok some pop and clicks but hell I get used to it! but then one day after I booted up the machine started doing some kind of a high pitched noise, the only way to get rid of it was booting again! and it became an every day practice for months just around July 2007 I installed again my windows Xp due to a new harddrive installation and I found from TECHPOWERUP website a BETA Driver downloaded and was working flawlessly until TODAY
well the driver I had timed out today was very difficult for me to put my machine back to work after I tried using the latest 2006 driver from sound blaster website my machine crashed and was into an infinite loop until I cleaned the drivers leftover in SAFEMODE and physically pulled out the card from the PC
for now I'm using the stinking on board audio very sad that SB doesn't release any newer driver the the 2006 and solve a lot of the existing problems!
how we can use that beta driver unlocking the due date? there any solutions??
my machine is (no over clock):
AMD X2 4800+
MSI K8N NEO4 platinum NF4 ultra PCB1.0
2GB RAM OCZ DDR400
EVGA 7900GT KO SC 512MB
2 WD Raptors RAid 0 74GB
Thermaltake TR2 500 PS
